Johns Hopkins has an international reputation for excellence in patient care, research, and teaching. We produce master clinicians, physician-scientists, and educational scholars. The fellowship program offers three training tracks listed below, but these tracks can be modified depending on your career goals.
The basic science track provides outstanding training in bench-top and translational research for a successful career as physician-scientist.
Fellows may participate in research within the Nephrology Division and in other Divisions or Departments at Johns Hopkins University.
Fellows interested in the basic science track identify a mentor and an area of research focus during their first year of fellowship. Fellows in this track are expected to engage in laboratory meetings and to apply for extramural funding during their training.
The clinical research track trains future leaders in clinical and epidemiological research within Nephrology and related fields. Fellows in this track have unparalleled opportunity to participate in clinical or epidemiology research within the Nephrology Division, Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology and Clinical Research, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Fellows in this track are expected to identify research mentors and potential areas of research during their first year. During their second year, fellows are supported by an NIH T32 grant to complete formal coursework towards a Master in Health Science degree in Epidemiology or Clinical Investigation at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Courses focus on epidemiological and biostatistical methodologies, grantsmanship, research ethics and integrity, and practical skills required for conducting patient-oriented research. The subsequent third year involves completion of the Master thesis, submission of peer-review manuscripts, and application for extramural funding.
